Summer Term 2018 – First Half

Here is the topic information for Class 1 (both Foundation and Year 1) for this half term. We hope it gives you an idea of the things we’ll be doing and learning about this half term.

In May, we’ll be heading off to Plymouth Aquarium to finally find out about different creatures and their habitats. In the final week of the term we’re also off to West Town Farm to find out more about farms and farming. Details to follow.

We thank you for your continued support with hearing children read in the mornings; thank you if you have been able to help. Thank you also for supporting our Pet day Monday – it has been, and continues to be a lovely way to find out about different animals and how they are cared for and is giving children a chance to present familiar information to others.

We will be doing lots of planting this half term so if you have any packets of seeds they’d be very welcome.

Foundation Stage:


Year 1:

Our routines

  • PE. Please have a named P.E. kit in school every day. (Keep a spare pair of pants/tights in PE bags if you think it necessary)
  • Homework will be given out on a Wednesday and is due in on a Monday.
  • We expect your child to be reading every day to an adult. Please make sure your child has his or her reading book and reading diary in school every day and help change his or her book in the morning if needed.
  • Water bottles. Please make sure that your child has a clean, named and full water bottle in school each day.

Please call in to see us if you have any questions or if you need to tell us anything and do remember to let us know if someone new is collecting your child from school. We need to be informed of this so we are confident that we are sending your child home with the right person.

We are both really looking forward to another great half term!
